CLIL EXPERT VISITS FIDIANA

   Yesterday a visit was paid to our school by Mr. Derek Erwin, an expert on CLIL and use of new technologies, who is going to be lecturing teachers at CEP Luisa Revuelta for three days starting today.
His visit was part of a tour of several primary and secondary CLIL schools in our city, in an effort to gain awareness of the kind of work being done in schools curently implementing the programme.
 After listening to a brief introduction  to our school's programme by its coordinator, Mr Erwin and his company were invited to observe some CLIL lessons being taught at the time (Maths, Physics and Music), where he was requested some collaboration, as can be seen in the photo.

OUR NEW ASSISTANT

 
Hello! My name is Lindsey Skelton and I am the new English language assistant this year at Fidiana. I am very excited to begin this new journey with all of you this year!  A little bit about myself; I am from the United States, California to be exact. Living in Southern California, I was always surrounded by Spanish so I´ve always had an interest in the language and culture. In college I decided to pursue my two biggest passions, Mathematics and Spanish. Also during college I spent one semester abroad in Seville studying. While there, I fell in love with the city and Spanish culture in general. One of my favorite parts of my experience was getting to enjoy a nice `café con leche´ in the evenings. As soon as I finished my studies in the U.S., I returned to Spain as a Language Assistant in 2013. Last year I worked at a secondary school in the town of Estepa in Seville. As I’ve only ever lived in Seville previously, I can´t wait to discover all of the charm that Cordoba has to offer. I am also excited to get to know the students of Fidiana and show them a little bit of what the world has to offer them.

A NEW YEAR, NEW STUDENTS... AND NEW TEACHERS

Here we are, back to work. A new school year has just started. Students are filling the classrooms again, some ready to finish their secondary education when June arrives, some others just beginning their way in Fidiana... and their CLIL education.
On arriving back from the holidays, our pupils have found some changes in the staff, as two new teachers have joined the CLIL programme: Ms Mari Ángeles Crespo, a lady with a broad experience in the CLIL world, is the new Geography and History teacher; and Ms Diana Bazo, who returns to Fidiana after a three years' absence, is their Philosophy and Citizenship teacher. We welcome them and wish them  -as well as all Fidiana students and staff- all the best for this new academic year.
